Santo Domingo.- A Dominican-American businessman being held on accusations of fraud and other offenses, Karim Abu Naba’a, told journalists yesterday that his father had been asked to pay US$180,000 in return for his release, but that he had rejected the offer.

Abu Naba’a, the former boyfriend of Leonel Fernández’s daughter Nicole, transmitted the information via his Facebook account, which he can reportedly access through his smartphone.

“What they are seeking is promotion for themselves, but don’t worry, everything is perfectly all right, I am happy wherever I am. Yesterday they blackmailed my dad with 180 thousand dollars, but I told my father that I would give him a discount, if they leave it at 90 thousand and I’ll stay here locked up,” says the post he made on the popular social network.

Nonetheless, his father Mustafá Abu Naba’a, speaking after visiting his son in the cells at the Palacio de la Justicia in Ciudad Nueva, said that the blackmail claim was “a joke by Karim.”

He is accused of the attempted murder of a lawyer, Gustavo Mejía Ricart, and the hearing in the case was postponed to 21 March 2013.

On 10 January the coercion measures against Abu Naba’a will be reviewed.

He is also accused of fraud and of making death threats.
